"Jake's ability to be around others and to communicate with them has greatly increased since coming to Dilston."
Andrew is a young man who started at Cambian Dilston College with aspirations to gain skills that would help him get a job, to develop relationships with friends and to improve his independence skills. Andrew has a real love for animals and wildlife and hopes to work in this area.
Andrew's willingness to try to new things and his positive attitude have been recognised in his recent work experience placement at a local library, where he came up with new ideas of his own to create promotional displays. They commented, "it was his imagination and ability to think beyond the instructions he was given that made his contribution to the work we do here outstanding."
Andrew has now moved onto another work experience placement in a local supermarket, where he is working more independently.
